It's Monday! What Are You Reading?

It's Monday! What Are You Reading? is a bookish meme hosted by Book Journey. It's where we gather to share what we have read this past week and what we plan to read this week. It's a great way to network with other bloggers, see some wonderful blogs, and put new titles on your reading list. So hop on over via the link above and join in...and leave a comment here so I can check out what you are reading.
 

Books Read (click on titles for review):
Surprised by Joy by C. S. Lewis
The Key by Patricia Wentworth


Currently Reading 
Sense & Sensibility by Jane Austen features two very different sisters who share a troubled, impoverished family background. Elinor Dashwood is practical and disciplined, Marianne capricious and emotional; both must struggle to achieve happiness in a society where men predominate and where they must balance emotional needs against financial realities. A powerful drama of family life, a chronicle of romantic misfortunes, narrated with irony and a sharp eye for hypocrisy, as well as a striking critique of early nineteenth-century society.
 
Books that spark my interest:
The Anatomy of Death by Felicity Young
A Stranger in My Grave by Margaret Millar
Some Danger Involved by Will Thomas

I'm reading The Jane Austen Guide to Life by Lori Smith and I'm listening to The Three Weissmanns of Westport
by Cathleen Schine.

I just want to thank you for posting about Roof Beam Readers Austen in August. I had been looking for something to do on my Jane Austen Society group blog and it was the perfect thing! I got in touch with Adam and got to write a fun guest post that posted on Friday.

I love Sense and Sensibility! It's one of my favorite Austen novels. There are several good movie adaptations, too.
